    Sounds like an egg got stuck, maybe a soft shelled egg, or broke inside her. I would soak her in a warm bath for a little while then put her in a quier, darkened place for 24 hours or so, to try to get her to relax and maybe pass the rest of whatever may be left inside. If you think there may be shell fragments in there, I wouldn't feel around inside. You can put a little Preparation H or honey around the vent and just inside to help reduce dwelling.
